The MY HERO Project is an award-winning, non-profit, educational website devoted to celebrating the best of humanity.  The MY HERO documentary film, Laguna Beach Eco-Heroes, was produced with support from the Massen Greene Foundation and is aired on COX TV.  MY HERO also hosts an annual short film and multimedia festival in Laguna Beach honoring local heroes. These programs serve as a model for other communities and the team involved in the production of the documentary film, along with local heroes featured in the film, will be speaking about their work at the January 11, 2018 Coastal Advisory Meeting.

 Jeanne Meyers, Co-founder and Director of The MY HERO Project, will be presenting an overview of the program celebrating eco-heroes at the upcoming meeting. Meyers has traveled around the world creating award-winning documentaries celebrating real life heroes.  MY HERO is used in classrooms around the world to promote positive role models in the media.

Nancy Caruso, founder of Get Inspired, will also be presenting her model program at the meeting.  Nancy is one of the heroes featured in the Laguna Beach Eco Heroes film for her work restoring kelp along the Southern California coastline.
